Tetris Effect: Connected Crashing Oculus App

Level 2

So, I've run into a rather strange problem that I would like to get some help on. I recently installed Tetris Effect: Connected via the Microsoft Store, and started having some trouble with it almost immediately after I began playing. It would let me play for a few moments before freezing my headset display and then booting me out of Oculus Link. I would have to reconnect in order to continue playing. I wanted to try and fix this since it began getting annoying, and tried difference methods to try and remedy the situation.


First, I tried lowering the graphics settings in the game, somehow thinking the particle effects were wearing my PC down


Next, I tried repairing the Oculus PC app, to no avail


Then, I tried unplugging my link cable and plugging it back in, even trying different ports. Once again, no luck there.


Finally, after remembering that these problems didn't occur until I played the game, I decided to uninstall it. I didn't think that this would work, but to my surprise, that was the issue. 


Now the odd thing is, that even if I didn't have Tetris Effect open, simply having the game installed on my PC, Oculus Link would still crash. It even got to a point to where I couldn't be in Oculus link for more than a literal second until it crashed, and this was after I restarted my PC. 


It's a real shame that I had to uninstall this game in order to continue using Oculus Link, and I was wondering if anyone had some insight they could offer on the matter. Perhaps it was a compatibility issue with the fact that it was a Windows 10 app instead of the Steam or Oculus version? Or could it have been something else?
